Production Assistant

The Atlantic, deemed by AdAge as “an ultra-modern, multi-platform juggernaut,” has been one of the true success stories of the digital age. A brand with unmatched history reinvigorated with the grit and vision of new leadership, The Atlantic has defined what it means for a magazine to thrive in the digital space. And its award-winning content continues to shine. Penned by the smartest, most-provocative journalists in the country, it consistently defines the national conversation and attracts the most important readers in the country.

Sparking intellectual debate, encouraging lively discussion, and bringing this deep editorial dialogue to life, AtlanticLIVE produces nearly 150 events a year across the country and around the world. These include large scale national events like Washington Ideas and CityLab; along with topical forums on everything from education to criminal justice; and "on the record" roundtable dinners on some of the most pressing issues of our time.

AtlanticLIVE was the recipient of four 2015 Folio FAME Awards, including the honor of being named “Magazine Event Dream Team.” In its recognition of AtlanticLIVE’s honors, Folio noted: “The extraordinary thing about The Atlantic is that virtually everything it touches has an instant stamp of innovation, thought leadership, and fresh ideas about important and often overlooked topics.”

Atlantic Media Values:

Across Atlantic Media, generally, the firm looks for two “pillar gifts” in its candidates.  In all of us, these are more aspirational than actual, but they are central in our intentions.

  1. Force of Intellect - Atlantic Media seeks a discipline and rigor of thought as manifested, often, in exceptional academic performance and, later, success in a professional environment.
  2. Spirit of Generosity - Equally, Atlantic Media seeks what we term a spirit of generosity – a natural disposition towards service and selfless conduct.

Atlantic Media is an EOE of Minorities/Women/Vets/Disability.
